Thumbs up

I just wanted to let everyone know I'll be broadcasting LIVE from the nats this weekend as a free service for everyone who can't make it (friends, family, sponsors, etc). I'll be streaming live video/audio along with a chatroom this Fri/Sat/Sun. There will also be a live photostream of photos throughout the weekend. This is a professional production, so I hope everyone enjoys it. However, if you can make it.. be sure to come! Fred and the rest of the Tamiya crew put on a great race every year and nothing beats being there in-person.

Just wanted to wish everyone safe racing on, to and over the track.

The only predictions I have got are:

GT2 - Lee P.

F1 Expert - David Jun

F1 Sportsman - Todd Marshal
(as long as a spring does not fly off a lap car and hit him in the head, it could happen . . .)

F1 Ultimate - I have to root for TODD YESSIR!

You aint kiddin!

I'm seriously considering gettin a Tamiya Touring Car.

Can't beat the group of peeps hangin out at the track.
Can't beat the track.
Can't beat the location, 10 minutes from my house!
Really likin the quality of the cars too and I need a new T/C anyway!

So, if I'm not needing the trick of the week, top of the line T/C, which car would be the best value?
Parts availability, sportsman level competitive, durability/reliability...

How bout some input from the been there done that guys. Thanks.
